The charge of the 6th Mounted Brigade at El Mughar in Palestine on 13 November 1917 – led by the 1/1st Royal Bucks Hussars – can claim to be the last great British cavalry charge.
This important centenary exhibition will bring together James Prinsep Beadle’s celebrated painting of the charge of the Royal Bucks Hussars, which has never been previously on public display, Beadle’s original sketch and Thomas Cantrell Dugdale’s painting of the same charge from the Trust’s own collections, as well as other artefacts and images.
It is one of the forgotten campaigns of the First World War, yet one that left a profound legacy in terms of the shaping of the modern Middle East.
Open Tuesday to Saturday 1000-1700
